Tracy O’Rourke from Go Lean Six Sigma, shares her tale on how she used Lean Six Sigma to battle her shoe buying addiction. Here are my key insights from her piece.
- Are you hoarding a particularly oversized collection or spending addiction? Use a Collection Kanban, as Kanbans are visual systems designed to help control inventory
- Designate space for all the items you have collected, then if your Collection Kanban is at full capacity (be it shoes or anything else you’re addicted to buying), you can see that you don’t need to buy more
- Also, as you can only add more to your Collection Kanban if there is space, you will have to undertake regular purges
